Historical information about this webcam
This live webcam is from Wiclowe in Northern Ireland and shows the north view from Ballyguile Hill overlooking Wicklow Town towards Dublin.
It is generally thought that Wicklow was founded by the Vikings, around 795 AD. However as the area has a natural harbour and fertile hinterland, it is likely that a small settlement existed before the Vikings landed.
Dublin, Arklow, Wexford and Rosslare Europort, a main ferry port are all connected to Wiclowe by rail for very easy commuting.
Wicklow has some world famous sites and attractions from Glendalough to Powerscourt, plus an abundance of smaller, less well known, but equally interesting places to visit including sandy beaches and rolling hills and valleys,
